Seminar Train the Trainer

for teachers of German at Scottish primary and secondary schools

Are you looking to become a German Language Trainer for Primary school colleagues in your Local Authority or cluster?  Do you plan to establish German as L3 or consolidate German as L2 in your cluster or Primary school? Do you want to learn how to make a start with German at primary level and get to know the Felix & Franzi teaching materials?
After the successful Train the Trainer seminar in October 2015 which resulted in 5 Up-skilling courses for about 50 Primary teachers across 5 Local Authorities, the Goethe-Institut offers another opportunity to develop training skills for local inset courses for primary teachers.
The seminar participants will be introduced to our free teaching materials “Deutsch mit Felix und Franzi” which offer the basis to roll out German as L3 or consolidate German as L2 in primary schools.

They will be trained in delivering language courses for primary teachers with no or little previous knowledge of German through the Felix and Franzi scheme of work. Thereby enabling the primary teachers to deliver German lessons in an age-appropriate, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and confident way.
Seminar language: Engllish and German. The seminar is aimed at teachers of German at Secondary schools and further education and primary teachers who are fluent in German.
